 It's getting COLD!  Lori cleaning snow off their car.
 A guy in Lori's ward made these Pinewood Derby Cars! Holy Cow!

Hello family!! 
This week was great! We got a few inches of snow, which has made things a bit exciting :) On Saturday we went to clean the church in the morning and the roads were icy and the snow was coming down hard. Don't worry I drove slow and we got there safely.  
We hadn't been able to get a hold of M------- for a while, and we finally caught her at home. She has decided to go to a rehab facility for the next month because she really wants to stop drinking. So we encouraged her and shared scriptures about how Christ will help us through our struggles and trials. We helped her recognize the Holy Ghost's presence so that she will be able to continue to recognize his influence in her life! She told us she would come to church on Sunday and we set up a ride for her, but she wasn't feeling well and didn't end up coming, sadly. 
We had lunch one day with an inactive member, J----. She hasn't gone to church since she was about 8 and doesn't really know much about the church. So we talked about the Doctrine of Christ and the Book of Mormon. We invited her to start reading, and I am excited to see her faith grow! 
We met with S-----, who is a recent convert, she has some things she is struggling with right now. And, she just wants to know everything, there is so much to know about the gospel that I just take for granted having grown up in the church. So, we are working on getting the new member lessons going with her, so that she can grow in her knowledge. And, on Sunday she brought her husband and daughter with her! They are both non-members and the husband always leaves when we come over.  But, he says he will probably join one day. So we need to figure out what is stopping him from learning right now! But, maybe it just isn't his time quite yet. 
Ahh! I wish I could tell you all the wonderful experiences I've had this week. I have seen the Lord guide me to where I needed to be at the right time!
I love this gospel! I love seeing how it has blessed the lives of those around me, and for the opportunity I have to meet so many wonderful people here in Nevada! I know the Lord is watching over me and helping me to do His work!
Thank you for your support and prayers!
